Question about Computers & Internet
I have a four-year old Dell desk top. The monitor just died. I bought an LG widescreen, but it looks terrible, apparently because my computer isn't capable of getting a high enough resolution. Should I get a new graphics card, or stick with a lower resolution, square monitor? I don't watch movies on the computer, but mainly use it to write and read stuff online.
Assuming the PC has a slot for which you can still get a suitable graphics card, the card will cost very little. The advantage of the widescreen is that, for example, you can get a web browser window and a text editor window side-by-side so you can work on the text and see what you're writing about/responding to simultaneously. Alternatively, you can see two A4 pages side-by-side which is sometimes useful. You can also see a full page of text and have all the tool palettes you need by its side. One last advantage: If your new monitor has a DVI socket and you get a video card which has DVI output, you should get a better quality picture which will be easier on your eyes.
